Shaking Crab Planning to Open in Old Troquet Space in Boston

A pair of Cajun seafood places is looking to expand again, and this time it would be taking over the space where a high-end Boston restaurant had been before moving to a new spot.

According to a licensing board hearing page within the City of Boston website, Shaking Crab is looking to open in the former Troquet space on Boylston Street by Boston Common, with a hearing on the proposed license transfer taking place May 3. If approved, the new eatery would join others in Newton and Quincy, both of which offer such items as fried oysters, crab legs, mussels, shrimp, and lobster.

Troquet recently moved to a new (and larger) space on South Street in the Leather District, taking over the spot where Bel Ari had been.

The address for the proposed Shaking Crab in Boston is 140 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02116. The website for the original location in Newton can be found at
